Scott Pilgrim vs. the ex of the girl of his dreams is one of the most acclaimed graphic novels of recent times. In 2010, it had a film adaptation starring Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, as well as a series of video games.
13 years after its premiere on the big screen, this story is back, but in an anime version produced by Netflix. Most excitingly, all 15 of the original cast will be lending their voices to their respective characters.
The news of this new version was shared through social networks by Edgar Wright, director of the remembered film and now producer of the animated project.
Fortunately, the cast of ‘Scott Pilgrim’ became a close-knit family and lifelong friendships were forged. To this day, there is still a group email with the entire cast, which has been running since 2010. I was happy to be able to reach out to everyone with the news that we have finally found a way to continue the adventure. Seeing (and hearing) everyone return to their roles has been a real treat.
